RYE BROOK -- A Shell station at the corner of Ridge Street and Bowman Avenue was the scene Tuesday for the movie "Freeheld,'' starring Steve Carell, Julianne Moore and Ellen Page

There was no sign of Carell Tuesday afternoon, but Moore and Page hopped in and out of a pickup truck during several takes of one scene.

Moore, 53, normally a redhead, was sporting a very blonde look Tuesday.

Page, 27, who was driving the pickup truck, shouts "A--hole, move your car,'' jumps out and appears to confront a motorist parked directly in front. (But she returns to her truck carrying a cup of coffee, so you'll have to wait for the movie to find out what really happens.) An unidentified actor sat quietly in her car parked directly behind the pickup throughout the film shoot.

The film tells the true story of a New Jersey police detective (played by Moore) who became terminally ill and tried to transfer her pension benefits to her domestic partner, played by Ellen Page.

Carell plays the supporting role of Steven Goldstein, a passionate advocate for Garden State Equality. The Daily Voice will keep you posted on any other star sightings in Westchester this week.
